INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — NBA scouts say Royce White has enough talent to be selected among this year’s top draft picks.
They’re just not sure how his anxiety disorder and fear of flying will affect him in the pros.
White was in Indianapolis this week for the second draft workout stop on his tour, and as usual, the 6-foot-8, 270-pound forward was peppered with questions about the disorder he was diagnosed with in high school. Coaches and general managers around the league are trying to get the same answers.
Nobody doubts the Iowa State star’s talent. He was the only Division I player to lead his team in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals and blocks last season. But now the Iowa State star must prove himself all over again during the interview process.
